MONTREAL, June 15, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The Quebec Community Groups
Network (QCGN) ended its annual meeting in Montreal this weekend with a
new Board of Directors, a renewed Strategic Plan and a consensus that
Quebec's English-speaking community needs formal representation in the
"We did not discuss what form that representation should take - perhaps
a dedicated minister, a commissioner or an ombudsman - but our members
were clear that our community needs a government body that is
designated to advise the provincial government on the development of
strategies, priorities and programs for English-speaking Quebecers,"
said QCGN President Dan Lamoureux. His comments followed a presentation
on how the federal government and several provinces and territories
have ensured such representation for their minority communities.
